Here's my old friend and glasser, Mike Rogers and I with Tom Carroll's new EPS 9'4. Mike was my North Shore glasser through much of the early 80's.
In late 1984, I got to know Tom and built Tom's first Rawson/Byrne boards through Mike.
His quality glass jobs along with Mark Townsend's hot airbrushes really kicked my brand into a new realm back then. Mike and wife, Darlene are here in Hawaii for 6 weeks working while Otis Schaper is recuperating from a shoulder surgery! I'm really stoked he's back again after all these years: "Magic will happen"!! #rawsonsurfboards, #tomcarroll, #gunsforlargesurf, #chronicsurfboards
